Intermittent availability of grid resources results in delays or failures of application execution. Hence, the reliability of application execution declines. In order to achieve a reliable application execution, a consistent availability of computing service is required. This paper proposes a grid computing system that achieves a consistent availability in order to achieve a reliable application execution. In the proposed system, steady state availability is achieved for longer durations.

The availability and reliability of the proposed computing service is analyzed using a Markov model. Simulation results prove that the proposed system achieves better reliability and availability compared to the existing replicated application execution system proposed in grid environment.
